It nah go nice unless Jamaicans are on it! Recently, Recording Artist Ed Sheeran has been blessing listeners with new music, namely his upcoming “No. 6 Collaborations Project“. One of the tracks that is doing its rounds is his collab with Justin Bieber titled, “I Don’t Care“. Today, Chronixx and Koffee combine their powers to deliver us a remix! While they give us that Dancehall Reggae vibes, Chronixx and Koffee basically own the song as Ed and Justin are left to just give us the chorus. Expect this one to make a lot of noise this summer. If she loves you like Keyshia loves Guwop, then it’s real. While Ed Sheeran and Justin Biber dabbled in a lil Reggae and Dancehall in their careers, we’d love some proper Dancehall/Reggae collaborations in the future, and level the playing field. One complaint I have is, if you’re going to have Jamaicans on a pop track, at least make the Youtube link playable in Jamaica (This is BS).
It’s Wedding SZN! For the month of June, Oldies Sunday will feature some love songs that can be a great addition to your Wedding Playlists, and could be the official song to dance to. Today we look back at the 5 Brother group Browne Bunch (a.k.a. Brownie) and their single, “Blue Skies“! With them all handling production and released through the Island Treasure label in 1991, the brothers Danny, Glen, Cleveland, Dalton, and Noel delivered a dedication to that special someone, and letting them know that they are their life’s purpose. To have someone who knows every side of you, and to help you become a better person is truly a blessing, don’t take it for granted.
Starting out as a teen sibling music group in the 70’s like The Jackson 5 and The Sylvers, they had a short stint before disbanding later in the decade. Their paths in music after, though broad, always lead them back together. They’ve made attempts to regroup in 1983 and 2015, but scheduling conflicts have put a damper on things. Danny Browne went on to become a legendary Producer, founder of the Bloodfire Posse group and Mainstreet Records, and recently had his work sampled by the likes of Nicki Minaj (more on that here). Glen Browne has worked with Jimmy Cliff, Ziggy Marley, and Tarrus Riley and has become a legendary Bass Player. Cleveland Browne went on to become a legend himself as the other half of the production duo, “Steely & Clevie“, with an outstanding track record in Jamaican music. Noel Browne took his talents as a Keyboard Player to the UK, and has worked with many inlcuding the late Dennis Brown, Glen Washington, and Papa San. Dalton Browne has been the go to Guitarist for many, and has worked with Freddie McGregor as his Musical Director, and even worked with Akon on his album, “Konvicted”.
With Nicki Minaj’s “Megatron” single out and doing numbers, it’s only right you get a quick history lesson on the sample. Assisting with that, we go into Playlist mode and high the “Filthy Riddim” in our #13thStreetThrowback Playlist Series! The Riddim was released in 1998 and produced by Danny Browne for Mainstreet Records. It gave birth to some classics including Lady G.’s “Breeze Off“, Spragga Benz’s “She Nuh Ready Yet“, Mr. Vegas‘ “Heads High“, and General Degree’s “Traffic Blocking“.
Tune in for the vibes. If you love the Playlist, let us know and check out our previous Playlists! Check it out below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Nicki Minaj is looking to cause problems with new music! While she has been enjoying the success of her “Queen” album, and promoting it worldwide, she’s looking to take over this summer with the new single, “Megatron“! While she kicks things off with a Mike Ho directed video, a familiar Jamaican Riddim can be heard throughout the Pop Wansel and NOVA Wav production. It is none other than Jamaican Producer Danny Browne’s “Filthy Riddim“! Released in 1998 through his Mainstreet Records, it is one of the latest Dancehall Riddims to have enjoyed sampling by a huge International Artist (In 2016, Richie Stephens’ “Sail Away Riddim” was sampled on Rihanna’s hit, “Work“!).
Deejay Shabba Ranks’ “Ting A Ling” was also sampled on “Megatron”. The track was released in 1992, and produced by Production duo Steely & Clevie (Who is Danny’s brother by the way) on the “Gi-Gi Riddim“. Knowing Nicki Minaj’s pull, expect “Megatron” to be streamed millions of times. Danny Browne’s “Filthy Riddim” featured the hits, “Heads High” by Mr. Vegas, “Breeze Off” by Lady G., and General Degree’s “Traffic Blocking“. Stay tuned to the Blog for a follow up Article.
